Dr. Louai Salaita

Dr. Louai Salaita completed his bachelor’s degree in molecular genetics at the University of Kentucky, and his Master’s in Physiology at the University of Arizona. Already an instructor in anatomy, physiology and histology, Dr. Salaita returned to his home state to attend dental school at West Virginia University. He quickly excelled, earning several honors, including the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Basic Science Award for having the highest cumulative GPA in his class.

In his third year of dental school, Dr. Salaita realized his passion for prosthodontics, specifically with complex cases and dental implants. He pursued specialty training at The Ohio State University under the guidance of internationally respected prosthodontists Dr. Wayne Campagni and Dr. Edwin McGlumphy, where he had the honor of being named chief resident in his third year of training.

Dr. Salaita was then appointed Clinical Instructor at The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, where he continues to enjoy teaching the next generations of dental students.
